ShipServ has signed an agreement with maritime software company Hanseaticsoft to integrate the ShipServ TradeNet e-procurement platform with the Hanseaticsoft Cloud computing platform, to facilitate purchasing processes directly within the application.
Hanseaticsoft’s Cloud Fleet Manager (CFM) software is a web-based ship management platform covering operations including the execution of inspections and audits, crew management, fleet scheduling, vessel chartering, risk assessment, maintenance and purchasing.
The ShipServ TradeNet platform has now been integrated and pre-installed into Hanseaticsoft’s CFM as the purchasing module, and can be accessed directly with a click.
“Hanseaticsoft is one of the most advanced technology providers within the maritime industry and a natural fit for ShipServ to partner with,” said Carsten Schmidt, SVP, Head of Sales EMEA at ShipServ.
“There is a seamless interface between both companies where there are clear core competencies and a specific point where ShipServ can add real value to Hanseaticsoft’s solution through the provision of procurement and sourcing services for supplies and analytics.”
“The ShipServ platform is pre-installed into CFM, so there is no requirement for the installation of an adaptor or to test the connectivity, which can take time. By simply ticking a box, a shipowner or manager’s purchasing department has an immediate and secure access to an entire marketplace and more than 75,000 suppliers to the maritime industry.”
